The following changes have been hotfixed on live servers (click the ‘More’ link for full notes!):

Porting Changes

  • The Portal Ceremony on the PvE side of Castle Sauvage, Svasud Faste, and Druim Ligen has been removed.
  • The Portal Ceremony in the Frontiers will now teleport players to their Realm’s Portal Keep every 10 seconds.
  • The Portal Ceremony timer is now increased by 60s for every keep lost by the home realm. This means if a home realm loses the center keep and both coastal keeps, the ceremony will be 3:10 minutes.
  • A Realm must own their center island keep (Caer Boldiam, Glenlock Faste, and Dun nGed) in order to port to any captured keeps in enemy Realms.

Click the ‘More’ link to read on!

Dock Changes

  • Home Dockmasters and captured Dockmasters now have the same difficulty.
  • Dock encounters have had their difficulty reduced.
  • The Docks near the Relic Town will now take players all the way to their realm's Ruined Keep.

Quest Changes

  • The Pict encampments have been moved to the roof of the Ruined Keeps and reduced in number.
  • The Pict encampments are no longer gated by Center Keep control and have been placed on a long spawn timer.
  • Doppelganger Lords will now spawn less frequently.

We sincerely appreciate the feedback received thusfar. We will continue to make adjustments and improvements to the Frontiers, so please let us know how we may improve your experience!

Thank you again, and we'll see you in the Frontiers!

You Examine the Grab Bag. It is Friendly Towards You.

"How many bags could a grab bag grab if a grab bag grabbed grab bags?"

Send us a video (of you) saying the above statement 10 times *perfectly clearly* in 30 seconds or less, for a chance to win a 3 month time code! Send your submissions to daoc-community@broadsword.com, and we'll select our time code winner. Your video will be featured in next week's Grab Bag! Honorable mentions and hilarious failed attempts may also be included, so you won't want to miss it.

Good luck to you, and now - onto the questions! Click the 'More' link to view this week's selection!

Let's start with a note about the patch status and testing: Testing changes of this magnitude internally or with Pendragon test events can never match our observations of these changes in a live environment. Such is the nature of MMORPG development. We’re on day three of Patch 1.115 and the information and feedback we received in these three days has already surpassed the volume of feedback we’ve received over the months, and all four Pendragon versions of 1.115 combined. 1.115 will undergo more changes, and we would like you to be part of those decisions. We’ll have more avenues beyond feedback to speak with you directly, answer your questions, and provide updates.

The questions!

Q: Hi, Is there any plans in the pipeline to revamp or revist PvE? As a returning player from 6 years ago, it does sadden me to see that PvE has all but died other than farming scales/Glass.
I do like the new Artifact rules, because that doesnt restore some of the PvE content, but i would like to see a little attention on PvE? Thanks

A: Short answer: Yes.

Longer answer: First and foremost - our near future plans are to observe action in New Frontiers, listen to your feedback, and tweak the changes accordingly.

Following this, we’d like to look at what we like to call the ‘top 10%’ of PvE encounters (The most difficult and rewarding encounters in the game – such as ML10, Summoners Hall, Dragons etc..) and update them with new mechanics and new rewards. We have received a good deal of positive feedback about the fully – leveled Artifacts because it makes those encounters worthwhile again. (That great idea, by the way, was submitted by a member of the community!)

We’ve a long list of changes and updates (as well as fine-tuning the updated New Frontiers) – so all of the PvE changes will not appear in one patch. We’ll do our best to make meaningful progress on this front as we move into the next few patch cycles.

Q: right now there is no point in defending the central keeps as you can still port to the new BKs via the portal pad, will there be any incentive to defend?

A: Incentives to defend all keeps and towers, not just the center keep is something we are spending a lot of time looking at right now. We knew going into 1.115 that more would need to be done on the Keep, Tower, and Relic front and so this is not at all unexpected. We have some plans already to give players a reason to defend and take these keeps and towers again. That said, we also want to observe how things go and listen to feedback for other potentially great ideas on this front. At the least, our next update will begin to address this concern.

Q: Can the portal ceremony be changed back into a simple port stone? It is a pain if one of your group misses the port, which is why I believe it was removed in OF.

A: Updates to the Portal Ceremony are currently being discussed. One of the primary objectives in 1.115 was to facilitate faster action, and while a three minute wait on a Portal Ceremony may not seem like much – we understand that it can be very frustrating while in-game, particularly if players are standing by waiting. This feedback is among the strongest we’ve received and it will not be ignored. Players will see requests for feedback on the ways we could possibly change the Portal Ceremony, and we’d like your weigh-in.

Q: Will there be an in game poll to find out with reliability whether or not the player base likes the NNF changes? I feel it would be helpful in shaping future changes, especially if the results were released.

A: Yes, as quickly as we can make it happen. Until we do, as mentioned before, we would like to open up more avenues for communication as we understand that some players do not participate on forums, and are hesitant to leave feedback. We have heard a great deal from the vocal minority – and they’ve been very helpful, but we need to hear from... [Read More]
